A Harrogate based artisan gin producer have opened the doors to their new retail experience located on Montpellier Parade this week.
Spirit of Harrogate, who produce the new Slingsby Artisan Gin, made with the beautiful and restorative nature of Harrogate in mind are inviting customers to step inside their new venue for the ‘Slingsby Experience’. Guests will be able to relax, socialise, sample the shop’s range of flavoured gins and over 30 tonics and buy the Slingsby Gin as well as being welcome to make their way upstairs to the Spirit of Harrogate room, where they will be taken on a journey through the history of gin and how Slingsby is created.
Seventeen of Slingsby’s 24 botanicals have been grown in Harrogate’s Rudding Park Hotel Kitchen garden and each has been selected to reflect the beautiful and restorative nature of Harrogate.
Key ingredients include Yorkshire rhubarb, Green and Jasmine Tea from Taylors of Harrogate and medicinal plants from Rudding Park such as Sweet Cicely, Primrose and Thyme; all lovingly and expertly combined with spring water from Harrogate’s world famous aquifer and pure single grain spirit.
Spirit of Harrogate will also be offering Slingsby Gin Experiences for up to 20 private, pre-booked guests, to include canapes and specially developed Slingsby Signature cocktails, created by Spirit of Harrogate’s hand-picked team.
Marcus Black, Co-founder & Managing Director, said: “We’re delighted to be opening the doors to Spirit of Harrogate’s very own retail experience. Slingsby Gin was developed by looking at things differently and its home, Spirit of Harrogate, certainly reflects this.
“We look forward to welcoming gin lovers to our unique offering and hope to share with them a truly wonderful Slingsby Experience.”
Spirit of Harrogate is located on 5-7 Montpellier Parade, Harrogate. For more information, visit www.wslingsby.co.uk
